‘I’ve lived and breathed fashion for as long as I can remember,’ Lisa Seskin told The Daily Telegraph in 2019. 

‘I guess being exposed to so much from such a young age, it really gave me the drive to take risks and back myself. I feel like I was born a retailer.’ 

Their father brought Topshop, Topman and JD Sports to the Australian market.
